Use a splitter to get the most out of your VCR in 1981

If you were lucky enough to have a VCR in 1980, you are going to want to maximize the potential of that VCR. That means splitting the signal and running it to both TV’s in your house. That way the kids in the family room can enjoy that copy of the Saturday Night movie you recorded last week while you and your husband watch it with a glass of wine in the den. The future had finally come!

  1. I was the kid in the 80s what had splitters for everything. Stereos, VCRS, phone jacks – I had every cable and configuration conceivable to connect devices.

    Drove my parents crazy.
